Boston Red Sox Fantasy Spin
Rafael Devers went 3-for-5 with a solo homer and three runs scored in the Red Sox’ victory over the Rockies on Wednesday. Devers tripled and scored in third inning, singled and scored in the fifth, and capped off the three-hit performance with a solo homer to right-center field off Rockies’ reliever Wes Parsons in the ninth. It was his first round-tripper since August 18. The 22-year-old third baseman has enjoyed a remarkable breakout campaign, emerging as a potential franchise cornerstone for the Red Sox, hitting .326/.375/.589 with 111 runs scored, 28 home runs, an American League-leading 104 RBI and eight stolen bases in 579 plate appearances.
Los Angeles Angels Fantasy Spin
Kole Calhoun went 2-for-3 with a double in the Angels’ loss to the Rangers on Wednesday. Calhoun was responsible for two of the Angels’ three hits in the shutout loss. He had a chance to get the Angels on the board in the opening frame, but grounded into an inning-ending twin-killing. The 31-year-old outfielder has quietly put together the best full-season performance of his career, hitting .240/.330/.485 with 78 runs scored, 28 home runs, 66 RBI and three stolen bases in 523 plate appearances.
